2017 / 18 was a year full of excitement and adventure for us. Our children participated in many external competitions such as Mago Memorial Art Competition and Sports Competition at American Excelsior School, Dance and Art competition, Fancy Dress Competition held by DCWC. Our athelteic Children, Nikhil & Jeewan made us proud by aced the race and winning the 1st and 2nd place in the Stay Fit, Stay Healthy – Marathoan Run at American Excelsior School.
Our Annual Day celebrations this year focused on the theme of Beti Bachao- Beti Padhao. It was a fest dedictaed to the girl child, to raising awareness around their rights and ensuring the survival & protection of the girl child. Our Chief Guest DC Gurgraon, Shri Vinay Pratap Singh, commended the children on their fantastic performances in dance, music and gym- nastics. The students blossomed under all this appreciation and felt deeply motivated to hone their talents further by rigoruos practicing in the future. We also conducted a session on Good Touch and Bad touch for the children and the parents as part of the Annual Day. Through this session we created awareness of recognition towards sexual advances and how to handle them.
The year also came loaded with fun, with us organizing a trip to Apno Ghar. The children were super excited to be visiting an amusement park and made full use of this opportunity by indulging in fun rides and activities at the venue.
The students had many chances to show their talents through the varied cultural activities we conducted at our Annual Day and festivals such as Diwali, Krishna Janmashtmi etc. In recognition of the popular saying a healthy mind, begins with a healthy body, we held events such as Yoga day and Sports day, where children excericsed their muscles through sport actvities
At Maanas Dispensary
We expanded our daignostic and treatment scope by engaging an ENT doctor and a Dental Surgeon to hold clinic at our Dispensary on a weekly basis. During this year, we also helped Sonia, a resident of Harijan Colony, who after many years of her marriage was unable to conceive. She took treatement from several local doctors but was unable to resolve the issue. Then, she approached Dr. Parvinder Kaur at Maanas Dispensary for her treatment. Under the timely care and treatment of Dr. Parvinder, Sonia conceived and today she is a happy mother to Pratik, a healthy tiny toddler.
